    So couple weeks ago I was given a gift as a thank you for a favour a pflueger trion 1-3kg rod with a shimano symtre 500 reel lol talk about light tackle . So made the trip to port hacking launched the boat first light hit my usual spot first cast on soft plastic got smashed by a 45cm chopper after fighting it for a couple of minutes managed to land it .2nd cast Bangg got smashed fought for about 5 minutes than as I saw some colour my braid started slipping on the actual spool wdf right while I was distracted trying to use my fingers for drag it wrapped it self around my electric motor and lost it than 3rd cast after freeing my electric motor a 32cm chopper than it went dead no hits wind picked up at 10am so I took off awesome little reel the symetre 500 was imported from USA

    What creekboy said! :) I don't think I have ever seen a 500 size reel here in Oz. It is amazing what is available overseas! What line capacity does it have?
    Cheers
